In 1991, Pentrex set out to explore the fascinating operations of the Mexican railway system, seeking to discover what type of equipment our southern neighbors used and how they ran their railroads. There was so much of interest to record that we were able to present multiple video releases. Now Pentrex is proud to present Volume 1, featuring the railroads of northern Mexico.
Every freight train runs with a caboose in the world of Mexico rails in the early 1990s. It'sa place where the art of telegraphy is still practiced as an essential means of communication. It'sa land where railway express is a thriving business. What seems odd to us is standard here. You ll see former Katy GP40s pulling passenger trains in direct contrast with new General Electric Super Sevens working on high priority trains.
Climb aboard the engine of a local passenger train and experience breathtaking views as the train grinds up seventeen miles of 3 percent grade. This ride is simply exhilarating! Your train adventures will take you into some of the most remote and beautiful locations in the country. It'san amazing trip that highlights the differences and the similarities of railroading on Mexico'snorthern rails!

Mexican railroads are interesting. The operations of rail traffic is old & modern. At the time of this video, the telegraph was still in use, as was the caboose. Old power from American companies are seen working hard in the rugged landscape. The scenery of the region is awesome, as seen with a cab ride. It is wild country that is worth seeing.
